Working Trees for Pollinators
Today, farms in the United States are larger and have less adjacent habitat to support bees. Yet, the need for pollinators in agricultural landscapes has never been greater. (6 pages)
The latest issue of the Inside Agroforestry Newsletter has hit the streets. In 1990, the Farm Bill authorized the establishment of the USDA National Agroforestry Center to accelerate the development and
application of agroforestry technologies to attain more economically,
environmentally, and socially sustainable land-use systems.
How can agroforestry help pollinators?
National Agroforestry Center
The USDA National Agroforestry Center (NAC) accelerates the application of agroforestry through a national network of partners. Together, we conduct research, develop technologies and tools, coordinate demonstrations and training, and provide useful information to natural resource professionals.

New Pollinator Publications
Posted November 13, 2015
The National Agroforestry Center has developed a number of publications that describe the role agroforestry can play in supporting pollinators. “How can agroforestry help pollinators?” is a two-page information sheet that highlights opportunities to recognize, protect, and enhance pollinator habitat. “Working Trees for Pollinators” is a six-page color brochure that illustrates important pollinators for food production and how agroforestry practices can be adapted to meet the needs of both pollinators and producers. The recent issue of our Inside Agroforestry newsletter is titled “Learn How You Can Use Agroforestry Help Pollinators”. Visit our Agroforestry Notes and Pollinators web pages for more information about pollinators and agroforestry.
